Abstract

A case of chronic enteropathy associated with SLCO2A1 gene (CEAS) is presented. The female patient was readmitted four times during a three-year follow-up period for intractable dropsy and anemia. Multiple ulcers of small bowel wall were revealed by endoscopic examination. Computed tomography enterography (CTE) and magnetic resonance enterography (MRE) showed the segmental wall thickening of the small bowel. Hepatosplenomegaly and increased bone density of spine and pelvis suggested the diagnosis of myelofibrosis. X-ray films showed the cortical thickening of tibiofibula. The mutations of SLCO2A1 gene were revealed by gene test and the diagnosis of CEAS was confirmed. According to our case report, imaging examinations, including CTE, MRE and X-ray films provide additional valuable information during the diagnostic procedure of CEAS.
